Common Tanning FAQsQ: Is indoor tanning as effective as outdoor tanning?
A: Yes, in fact, sometimes more so because you are in a controlled environment. Your skin produces a tan the same way in an indoor tanning salon as it does when you lay out in the sun: through UV light. However, out in the sun, you cannot control the amount of UV light exposure and trying to achieve an all-over even-body tan is very difficult. Indoor tanning allows you to control the amount of UV light, for an all-over even tan. With indoor tanning you can gradually increase your exposure time eliminating any sunburn, which is harmful to the skin. The results and convenience of an “indoor tan” allows a year round healthy looking tan without concerns of prolonged exposure to the burning rays of the sun.
Q: Is tanning safe?
A: Indoor UV tanning provides the same benefits and risks as outdoor tanning. Both feel good and can improve your appearance and some health conditions like Vitamin D Defiency. Moderation is the key to playing it safe when you’re tanning. Don’t EVER sunburn! Sunburn is not a base for a tan; it only damages your skin and increases your risk for developing melanoma.
Q: Do I need Tanning Salon Approved Goggles?
A: YES YES YES!!! Of all the things you need to protect when you tan, your eyes are the most important. Eyelids do not have melanin (which protects your skin from burning) so shutting your eyes is not enough to keep your retina and other areas from getting damaged. At 33 Tanning Spa we supply Clients with proper eye protection. This eyewear must meet federal government standards by blocking 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Closing the eyelids or using sunglasses, towels or cotton balls is not adequate protection as the UV rays will easily penetrate these things. There are several eye diseases that can occur from not wearing protective eyewear. Continued exposure will weaken and diminish your night vision considerably. This is something you cannot get back! Wear your goggles – they will keep your pretty eyes gleaming for years to come!
Q: Can I use outdoor lotions in a tanning bed?
A: No! Outdoor products should only be used outdoors as they can cause a film on the acrylic. This actually inhibits the tanning process, rather than acting as an amplifying agent. At 33 we have plenty of indoor tanning lotions or our clients to choose from. Ask your Spa Consultant which indoor lotion will be best for you! .
Q: Why should I use an indoor tanning lotion when tanning?
Indoor tanning lotions also known as “accelerators” add nutrients your body needs to produce melanin. Our line of quality accelerators contain vitamin A, C, E, and botanicals that moisturize and increase blood flow, thus increasing oxygenation of melanin cells to help speed up the tanning process. UV rays reflect off of dry skin, the moisturizers in tanning accelerators help you absorb UV rays for better results. You will tan about twice as fast and keep your tan twice as long.
Q: How long should I wait in between tanning sessions?
A: 24 hours it’s the law! It is prohibited by Florida State Law for anyone to tan more than one time in a 24 hour period. We have both software and legal restrictions that won't allow you to tan with us again until 24 hours at least from the last time that you tanned. Keep in mind that the law applies only to UV beds, and not Sunless tans. You also want to make sure there is no reddening or burning of the skin before tanning again. Always start with a lower time. Patience is key!
MEDICATIONSWhen exposed to UV lights some medications might cause a reaction. Here at 33 Tanning & MicroSpa, we have a list you can review to find out if any of the medications that you are currently taking can cause an adverse reaction when tanning. Before you use any of our tanning equipment please consult this list and inform your doctor that you are going to be tanning.
More About Indoor Tanning Lotions
Using an indoor tanning lotion is one of the very best ways for you to get the most out of your tanning experience. It will protect your skin as well as help to accelerate your tanning results. Tanning bed lotions also moisturize your skin. This is very important given that the UV rays received by your body during the tanning process will dry your skin out. When an indoor lotion is used it can help to counteract the drying as well as provide your skin with nutrients that it needs for resisting environmental effects surrounding you. Studies have shown that skin that is moist tans better than skin that is dry.
Typically Indoor Lotions Contain tyrosine. This is an amino acid that works to help your body produce melanin. The UVB rays that a tanning bed emits also stimulates melanin production. Indoor tanning lotions can enhance this production. Tyrosine assists the body with retaining melanin for a longer period through slowing the exfoliation process down and replenishing amino acids. Lotions that contain tyrosine might also help with cleaning your pores given that it has been shown that tyrosine is an antioxidant that binds together dangerous free radicals to allow them to get exfoliated.
Numerous tanning bed lotions have Vitamin E in them as well, which helps with clearing your pores, and also copper, which helps to reduce the visibility of skin flaws such as unsightly scars. Other lotions contain Matrixyl 3000 and Strivitan. Those ingredients are used in medical grade and cosmeceutical skincare products for combating wrinkles and fine lines. The antioxidant effects of Vitamin E and tyrosine can fight aging signs as well, especially helping to prevent the development of fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
60% of your tanning time gets wasted if you don't use lotion since light reflects off of skin that is dry. When an indoor tanning lotion is used it moisturizes your skin which can help to improve your tanning session's efficiency and might also result in you having to go to the tanning salon less often.
There are many different forms of tanning bed lotions. There are some that are considered to be tan maximizers or accelerators, and contain ingredients for enhancing tyrosine effects. Others are considered to be moisturizers that assist your skin with its recovery process after a tanning session. Whatever product you end up choosing, you will find an excellent selection of various tanning lotions for you to consider. 33 Staff can provide you with a broad range of options.
